@RiotDemon yea. The image loaded for me with the link when I saved it/refreshed the page so I figured it was working and didn’t try and fiddle with it. And I always post the link instead of a saved pic so it goes to the cartoonist site. Not sure what happened there but thanks
This article reminded me that once, many years ago, I had a dream that I was in a space ship headed towards the center of the universe to see what was there. I spent a lot of time looking out the window in awe of what I saw. In that space ship was someone who was mobility disabled but in space, with no gravity, that didn’t matter. It was a disappointment to wake up from that dream.
There are little things that are special. I was in a major traffic jam trying to get off the highway. Overhead a hawk was soaring. Circling. I was able to watch it the entire time I was stuck. It was low enough you could see how he used the tips of his wing feathers to make minor adjustments, adjust his wing position to make more major ones and only once did he flap his wings with one flap. It was amazing to me how he played the currents to stay aloft and not have to work hard at it.
As 2020 was well know for sucking major donkey ASS there was one bright side to my 2020 story. Started in 2019 moving money around and deciding to day trade. I moved it into a few accounts to start. I ended up leaving 80% of it as cash into 2020 then Covid hit. I spent a few months figuring out what to do and what stocks may benefit from this tragedy. So I had a mid six figure stash and started buying big chunks of 4-5 stocks in mid March. By late March early April I was all in. Since then I haven’t sold anything till today. All I can say is I am very please. Loving my 380+% avg. up. Never thought I would ever see multiple 7 figure accounts. Yep I’m a bragger and it feels good. Lol. PS I have made more donations this year then every other year combined.
Here’s the main story:
There are some messed up communities with some people in very bad situations. My story may be with a happy ending but there are plenty who need our help. So if you can. Help a friend, neighbor, local food bank, shelter or family. Give money, food, clothing or just a hand. You’ll be a hero in my book! You’ll make some people very Happy as well… PLEASE…!
Merry Xmas to everyone and FUCK Covid, politicians & a few other groups I will not name.
OH HAPPY NEW YEAR
@bugger You did well. Nice. My unsolicited opinion is to now park enough of it (so you are fine regardless of what the stock market does) where you won’t lose it in case everything crashes. Then continue to play with the rest in case it doesn’t. While you won’t be as rich if things continue to climb (by parking some), you won’t be as poor if the entire house of cards comes tumbling down.
2018 and 2019 really sucked financially and otherwise. This year I have a reliable income from one of my clients. My BF has a work from home job all year. I have a warm comfortable home for the first time in two years. My health has been amazing. And I have a built in excuse to socially isolate. 2020 has been very good to me!
In July I lost my beloved 17-year-old cat, and in October a close friend of mine died, but in mid-September I found this big sweetie at the Humane Society and he’s the best thing that’s happened to me all year.
@tinamarie1974@Kidsandliz He is, really, although he doesn’t quite get that when I pat him I’m not up for play-fighting. I’m trying to train him to know that nipping and rabbit-kicking my hand is not okay! I wish I knew where he came from; he was turned in as a stray, but he has impeccable litterbox habits so it seems like he must have had a previous home. Not quite as affectionate as my last two, but maybe he’ll get there eventually.
